Shima Seiki US Inc., the US subsidiary of Japanese flat knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., will hold the third 'Global 3D (G3D) Knitting Seminar & Workshop' at the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator (BF+DA) in US on April 25-26. It aims to bring together representatives from the apparel industry to focus on the future of the industry.

For the 3rd edition, Shima Seiki is partnering with BF+DA, an educational and professional resource for the fashion industry established by Pratt Institute that provides designers with the means to transform their ideas into a successful business.

Shima Seiki’s flagship MACH2XS Wholegarment knitting machine featuring the original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-type moveable sinkers will be on display. MACH2XS offers high efficiency and stability with extended patterning capability while knitting Wholegarment items. The compact SWG061N2 Wholegarment knitting machine offers flexible production as well as the capability for producing technical textiles for sports, medical and other industrial applications.

The new SVR123SP computerised flat knitting machine features a loop presser bed with inlay capability, offering new and exciting possibilities in hybrid knit-weave textiles. The compact SSR112 workhorse machine will also be on display to demonstrate the leading edge in computerised shaped knitting technology.

The SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system that is at the core of Shima Seiki’s 'Total Fashion System' concept, that integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion, will also be shown. Virtual sampling through photo-realistic simulation minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process. APEX3 also supports design and simulation in various other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing. (KD)
